“Ok, Ev, whatcha got to show me?” Mike crossed the hanger floor calling ahead to the refit officer.
“Oh, you gonna be thankful you be a deep down Gallente man.” Ev tapped some keys and a ship hologram rotated above them.
“Now dis be some working designs for the new ship comin outa the yards. But you wanna know the sweeeeeet ting about it?”
Mike was barely listening, taking in the smooth symmetry of the vessel. “What?”
Ev touched some more controls and the stats appeared below it. It took a moment for Mike to spot it. “Got ta be a typo. Looks like you could fit large guns on that beauty.”
“It gits betta, mon. Word is that they is finally gonna be upgrading the hybrids ta be a reasonable threat to ships other than themselves. Combine these two together and you got. . . . ”
A huge grin spread across Mikes face. “You got a world of pain wrapped up in a little glass box. Battleship weapons in a BC hull is another way of praying the enemy does not return fire. But if you get the right alpha in . . . ”
“Ain’t ever been return fire from wreckage.” Ev nodded. “Gonna be expensive, though.”
“I’ll start saving my empties.” Mike laughed and clapped Ev on the back. “I have to contact the GBA, when this comes out we have GOT to give one out to some lucky pilot.”

I love the lines and the fact that this is not a win button but a more black and white win/lose choice. Glass cannons are notorious for being wept about on both sides of the fence. ‘too powerful’ ‘weak, I lost another one’
I don’t have a prize this week but I am saving (Thank you Alice K) for prizes in the future and I will almost absolutely be giving one of these away.
My question for you for the next post is armor or shield? which is the better ship style?
fly it like you want to win another
